Hawaii: In Real Life ~ Sake 101

If you’ve ever wondered about sake but were afraid to ask, visit The Sake Stop at 1461 S. King St. Their whole reason for opening their store was to help educate people about sake and share in the appreciation of the rice-based alcohol.

They have free tastings at least once a month around a theme. During their tastings, they teach you about the rice, the regions, and other unique aspects of each featured sake.

Sake has become so popular, you can drink it in place of wine — if you know the right flavor profile. So we visited with Nadine Leong of The Sake Shop to learn a little more about this trendy alcohol and some of the things you might look out for when drinking it at a Japanese restaurant.
